A&W to relaunch in Singapore in 2018

The American fast-food chain made its debut in Singapore in 1966.

According to a report by Channel News Asia, after exiting the market more than 10 years ago, A&W will set up shop in Singapore again. The company is currently looking for a retail space for its flagship in Singapore, which is scheduled to open next year. This flagship will also serve as a training store for other Southeast Asia outlets, reports said.

According to a Yahoo report, A&W CEO Kevin Bazner said that A&W has had an office in Singapore since 2016, and that the company is looking to open 30 to 40 new restaurants a year across Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.

A&W, which stands for “Allen and Wright”, made its debut in Singapore in 1966 at Dunearn Road. However, by 2003, A&W faced stiff competition from its competitors and closed its remaining outlets in the same year.
